Many of us see these people on our screens but are unaware that they are in fact siblings.
Here are 10 Nigerian celebrities that are in fact siblings.
Dakore Egbuson-Akande and Timini
The pair are both actors in Nollywood and since emerging on our screens have continued to churn out really entertaining movies. Speaking on his sister, Timini in an interview revealed that she is, in fact, a role model to him.
She is like a role model. I look up to her in terms of life generally, even aside from career; she is an amazing woman. The values that she holds in life are stuffs that I have emulated. I think that’s what has brought me to where I am today. If you ask around, everyone will tell you that I am a good person, so basically, that’s what it has been. She’s been like a role model. She was successful in acting and I saw that success is something that can happen; it is something you can sustain. You can have life; you can have everything you need. It’s like going into a career, you want to go into farming and you know a farmer that is successful. That gives you the hope, the motivation to actually dive with both feet in and see what can come out of it. So, for every step of the way, she has pushed me, she has motivated me.
